Description

This recording is of a performance of the first act of the opera Shibeth held on August 26th, 207 at the Chapel of the Venerable St. Bede in Coral Gables, FL. It was performed during the inaugural performance of the Psyche Electro-Acoustic Opera Company. This performance Brigette Cormier (choreographer and dancer) as Shibeth, Lisa Seigido (vocalist) as the disembodied voice, and Lawrence W. Moore on modular synthesizer components. The stage lighting was run on MAX/MSP and produced by Liza Seigido. Live engineering of the performance was performed by Robbie Holechek and Jheryl Hill. The editing and production of the video was performed by Liza Seigido of the Psyche Electro-Acoustic Opera Company.

Act I Includes Begin End Cycle and End Cycle Begin, composed by Lawrence W. Moore for modular synthesizer components, fixed audio, fixed video, live voice, and live dancer. The dance choreography was composed by Brigette Cormier.

In the story, Shibeth has just died. Her spirit encounters a disembodied voice in the world beyond. She struggles with what this voice is asking her to do, let go of her self. The spirit becomes enraged as Shibeth resists. Perhaps there is a choice as to whether or not we allow consciousness to be destroyed and recycled upon death?
